project: New website design for San Francisco bassist and composer Matt Small.
Matt creates music that blurs the boundaries between divergent musical
styles, producing a uniquely fresh sound. He explores a wide variety of
musical genres while exercising "a strong aesthetic sensibility".
This project is a true collaboration. Working with Small we wanted a
site that could feature not only his music but show his deep dedication
to his craft and an unrelenting spirit of curiosity. Visually we did
this by using a more playful image that was taken by a professional
photographer on the home page. A quote from Yo Yo Ma was used to further
his professional standing. A letter using vintage parchment was created
as a way to further the personal message.
